Castlevania - SOTN: What the hell is this room for?

When you walk through a red door you enter a room where the music stops. The floor is light blue and green alternating tiles. It's symmetrical with an angel on each side. I'll take a picture with my iphone shortly

Is the square for it yellow on the map?

Nah, it's just blue. The only thing I can think of is it's a room to load the rest of the castle, that way it doesn't need loading screens. Like Soul Reaver did.

You are 100% right. It is just a room used to transition from one "level" of a castle to another as well as load the next area. When you enter a new area of the castle, the name of the area should appear at the bottom of the screen (if I recall correctly ... it has been a while since I played SotN ... it may be displayed on the top of the screen). That is all there is to that room ... you will never be attacked, you should never die, and you should never miss anything important in that room or any room like it (there will be several). Personally, I preferred having this little room to run through to a boring little loading screen (especially the ones on Splatterhouse that I am currently playing .... these are brutally long).

Yeah, I prefer a transition rather than a loading screen. I just assumed it was something like the store at first since the music stopped and whatnot. Thanks
